Raynaud’s is a common condition affecting around 1 in 6 people. In people who have Raynaud's, the small blood vessels in the extremities are over-sensitive to changes in temperature or stress causing an attack. 
Raynaud's symptoms generally affect the fingers and toes, but all extremities can be involved, including: the ears, nose, lips, tongue and nipples. 

Primary Raynaud's can be diagnosed by your GP and can be managed easily.  Autoimmune conditions known to be associated with secondary Raynaud's include:
  • scleroderma – a condition that causes hardening and thickening of the skin
  • rheumatoid arthritis – which causes joint pain and swelling
  • Sjogren's syndrome – where the immune system attacks the body's sweat and tear glands
  • lupus – which causes tiredness, joint pain and skin rashes   
Did you wake up on January 1st with a new found determination to have the body you have always dreamed of? How long did that motivation last? According to experts, 80% of us will fail by February!  

Make February the month to get fit. Set reasonable goals, use fitness apps or programs for daily motivation and most of all don't expect it to happen overnight! 

Remember, abs start in the kitchen so for expert nutritional advice, speak to your practitioner at your next visit. They are more than willing to help you reach your goals and would be happy to pass on information and advice.

A delicious, hearty meal which comes together in 45 minutes! 


  • 1 large (2 lbs) head of cauliflower, trimmed
  • 3/4 lb Yukon gold potatoes
  • kosher salt
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 3 medium onions, chopped
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1-inch piece of fresh ginger, peeled, and finely grated
  • 1 tablespoon ground coriander
  • 1 tablespoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cardamom
  • pinch of dried red pepper flakes
  • 2 star anise (optional)
  • 1 (28-ounce) can chopped tomatoes
  • 1 (14 to 15 ounce) can chickpeas, drained and rinsed
  • 2 cups vegetable broth (or substitute with water)
  • 1 tablespoon garam masala
  • 3/4 cup light coconut milk
  • large bunch of fresh cilantro, chopped
  • kosher salt
  • freshly ground pepper
  1. Cut the cauliflower into medium-sized florets. Chop the potatoes into 3/4-inch chunks roughly. Place cauliflower and potatoes in a large soup pot and fill with cold water. Season the water heavily with salt. Bring to a rolling boil over the stove. Remove from the heat immediately, and drain gently into a colander. Place colander over the pot to stay warm while you prepare the remaining ingredients.
  2. Heat the oil in a large, heavy pot Add the onions, garlic, and ginger, and saute, stirring every few minutes, for about 8 to 10 minutes, or until the onions are very soft and translucent. Adjust heat if necessary.
  3. Add the ground coriander, cumin, cardamom, red pepper flakes, star anise, and salt and pepper, and cook, stirring frequently, for 2 to 3 minutes, or until very fragrant. Add the tomatoes with their juices and drained chickpeas, and stir mixture together. Add the cauliflower and potatoes. Add the vegetable broth (or water, if using)–the broth/water should almost reach the top of the vegetable mixture–and bring to a low simmer. Simmer mixture for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the cauliflower and potatoes are fork tender.
  4. Stir in the garam masala and coconut milk, simmer for an additional 10 minutes, and season to taste with salt and pepper. Don’t be afraid of salt–this dish needs heavy seasoning!
  5. Finish the soup by sprinkling and stirring in 1/2 to 3/4 cup roughly chopped cilantro. Serve with rice and naan.
